Title: Efficient transformer study: Analysis of manufacture and utility data

Abstract

Distribution transformers convert power from the distribution system voltage to the end-customer voltage, which consists of residences, businesses, distributed generation, campus systems, and manufacturing facilities. Amorphous metal distribution transformers (AMDT) are also more expensive and heavier than conventional silicon steel distribution transformers. This and the difficulty to measure the benefit from energy efficiency and low awareness of the technology have hindered the adoption of AMDT. This report presents the cost savings for installing AMDT and the amount of energy saved based on the improved efficiency.
